Leading manufacturer of speciality chemicals, raw materials and ingredients, Cornelius Group, is supporting The European Week of Sport, as a member of the European Specialist Sports Nutrition Alliance (ESSNA).

The week-long event, organised by the European Commission and partnered by ESSNA, gives nearly 2 million members of the public the opportunity to get involved in 7,568 events in 27 countries.
The aim of the week is to promote sport and physical activity across Europe. Open to everyone regardless of age, background or fitness level, the event will run from September 10th – 16th. Participants will be challenged to demonstrate their activity levels by posting videos and photos on social media, using the hashtag #beactive

ESSNA was originally founded to create a forum for discussion and a vehicle for action on the concerns of the specialist sports nutrition sector. The aim of ESSNA is to secure appropriate and proportionate European legislation on sports nutrition products. As part of its ESSNA membership, Cornelius supports the organisation in improving perceptions of the specialist sports nutrition sector.

Kerry Dodd, Business Manager Health and Nutrition at Cornelius, commented: “We’re proud to be supporting The European Week of Sport as a member of ESSNA. Being a Europe-wide event, it really helps to unite people of all abilities and allows them to take part in some fantastic workplace and education focus days.”

“Highlighting the benefits of physical activity is key to so many markets, with sports nutrition being just one of them. We’re very pleased to be involved in an event that creates a positive, atmosphere around physical activity for so many people and in so many sectors.”
